Comprehensive Immigration Reform and Changes for Employers

I recently had the opportunity to appear on ProBoat Radio, a weekly radio program sponsored by the Professional BoatBuilder Magazine and The International BoatBuilders Exposition & Conference (IBEX), to talk about my upcoming Comprehensive Immigration Reform seminar and workshop that will be held at IBEX on September 17, 2013. Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR), if signed into law, will affect all U.S. employers in varying degrees. My seminar at IBEX will cover what boat builders – and all other employers – need to know about changes they will face with CIR.

During the radio program, we discussed the new Form I-9 at length. Form I-9 is required for all U.S. employers to verify the employment eligibility and identity of all employees hired. Even if you personally know an employee was born and raised in the United States, the Form I-9 is still required for every employee hired after November 1986. Non-compliance with this regulation will be even more problematic and costly if CIR is signed into effect.

We also discussed Form I-9 audits, the mandatory use of E-Verify and the pending Senate Bill, Border Security, Economic Opportunity & Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, that will make it more important than ever for employers to be I-9 compliant.
